Waterford Fringe Festival
Garter Lane Theater
Performed by the Song and Dance Youth Theatre Company
“Listen To My Heart: The Songs of David Friedman” is a musical revue of the work of one of the American musical theatre’s most talented composers. Over the course of this special evening, the six talented performers will take you on a journey of love, loss, laughter and tears… plenty of tears. Tissues recommended!
“Listen To My Heart” is presented at the festival by Song and Dance Youth Theatre. Based in North Dublin, the youth theatre was formed in 2006 and since then has presented a full-scale musical each October to rave reviews and packed houses. However, the entirely more intimate experience of the musical revue is a new venture for the company. Nonetheless, when originally staged in February 2010, they performed to capacity audiences and standing ovations every night.
Although obviously excited about participating in an international festival, cast members Andrew Linnie, Donal Brennan, Lucy O’Byrne, Rachel O’Byrne, Susan Haddon and Stephanie Maxwell are really just looking forward to being able to perform the show again and bring the magical experience of “Listen To My Heart” to Waterford audiences.
